We will be hosting the 57th & 58th morning & evening specialty shows at the Cal-Expo Pavilion building in April of 2013. These are AKC licensed, unbenched shows featuring Sweepstakes, Junior Sweepstakes, Veteran Sweepstakes, and puppy classes. While novice classes are not offered at this time, it is sure to be a great time for you and your basset!

Any questions regarding accomodations/lodging for the show can be sent to our hospitality liazon Jennifer; while question about sweepstakes or the conformation showitself should be sent to Joani Rush here.


The Basset Hound Club of Sacramento hosts two Field Trials in Lagoon Valley every spring and fall. These are two-day events that allow your basset to practice its tracking skills, and see how its nose ranks among the other top hounds in Northern California. For more information on Bassett Hound Field Trials, see the American Kennel Club's introduction here, or send an e-mail directly to Patti Palmer.
